How old does my child need to be to apply?
Typically, Transitional Kindergarteners will turn five between July 1 and December 31 of the year they will enroll, and Kindergartners will turn five between July 1 of the previous year and June 30 of the year they will enroll. However, we recognize that every child is unique, and these birthdate ranges are not the only determination of correct placement. We are happy to talk with you if you are unsure. There are no specific age requirements for grades one through six.
When should I apply?
You apply the fall prior to the year your child would enroll.
What is your sibling policy?
Village is a family school and we recognize the benefits of having all children in a family at the same school. Therefore, while we do not guarantee admission, it is Village's policy to give preference to siblings.

If I am unable to pay the tuition should I still apply?
Yes. The ability to pay a flexible tuition amount that is specific to your unique financial circumstances is available to families who qualify.  There is a separate process to apply for flexible tuition- please click here for more information.


What are school hours?
School hours are 8:00-3:00 for all grades TK-6.  Students may be dropped off in the morning from 7:30 am and optional after care runs until 5:00 pm.
